I feel like a fraud. My name actually is not even Ashton. Ashton is my middle name. My first name's Chris. And it always has been. And it got changed when I was like 19 and I became an actor. But there are some really amazing things that I learned when I was Chris. And I wanted to share those things with you guys, because I think it helped me to be here today. So it's really 3 things. The first thing is about opportunity. The second thing is about being sexy. And the third thing is about living life. [So first opportunity].

We demystify surface.

 

The sexiest thing in the entire world is being really smart. And being thoughtful. And being generous. Everything else is crap. I promise you. It's just crap that people try to sell to you to make you feel like less. [So don't buy it].

They are poisonous.
